Lucroy latest to go down
The Brewers’ injury issues have officially moved to the ridiculous.
Catcher Jonathan Lucroy was scratched from the lineup Monday with a bruised right hand suffered in a bizarre accident. He was reaching under his hotel room bed Sunday night for a lost sock when his wife shifted a suitcase, which fell on Lucroy’s hand.
Lucroy kept quiet and reported to Dodger Stadium to take some swings. It became clear he couldn’t play because he couldn’t properly grip the bat.
He was to undergo x-rays Monday afternoon.
“I didn’t want to say anything because I don’t like not playing,” he said. “I want to play. But I went down and took some swings and it didn’t feel good, so I had to spill it.”
George Kottaras will catch instead. He’s banged-up too, after experiencing left hamstring cramping on Sunday.
